New Laser Alignment Kit for Industry

Combines transit, straightedge, and laser alignment in a portable product

Published: Monday, August 8, 2011 - 12:50

(Pinpoint Laser Systems: Peabody, MA) -- Pinpoint Laser Systems has introduced the Proline Alignment Kit, a visual laser system for checking and measuring straightness, flatness, squareness, parallelism, leveling, and many other tasks. This kit combines the features of a transit, an infinitely long straightedge, and laser alignment system all in one compact, portable, versatile product. Precision laser alignment for production, maintenance, and plant engineering projects, both large and small, has never been so easy.

The Proline Laser produces a crisp, collimated laser reference beam that forms a bull’s-eye pattern for easy visual alignment and precise measuring. The laser is enclosed within a precision machined housing, ensuring that the laser reference beam is parallel to the side and base surfaces within 0.003°, or <0.030 in. at 50 ft. This level of accuracy is ideally suited for setting straight machinery runs, aligning production equipment, transferring mechanical points, locating shafts and bearing mounts, aligning belts and pulleys, and countless other industrial tasks.

A finely ruled target and magnetic base are easily moved around for checking alignments, allowing one person to perform the work of several. The kit includes a leveling base so the laser can measure flat planes and machined surfaces. A 90° laser prism is useful for squaring machinery and checking the parallelism of rails, tracks, and guides. A growing line of versatile targets, mounts, and attachments expands the versatility of the Proline Laser for any task, however specialized. The Proline Laser and all its accessories are machined from solid aluminum with stainless-steel parts and protected by a hard anodized coating for years of dependable use on the factory floor. The kit comes in a durable carrying case for convenience and easy transport. Like all Pinpoint products, the Proline is manufactured in the United States.
